Premise
Detectives who are part of the NYPD's Special Victims Unit investigate crimes against the vulnerable. While the focus of other shows in the ``Law & Order'' franchise is primarily on murder cases, the SVU detectives frequently deal with rape and assault, in which a survivor assists with the investigation. The series cast of veteran actors includes Mariska Hargitay and rapper Ice-T, and occasional crossover episodes feature detectives from other series including editions of the ``Law & Order'' franchise and as well as ``Chicago PD,'' another series from the mind of executive producer Dick Wolf.

Current cast
Mariska Hargitay as Sgt. Olivia Benson
Ice-t as Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola
Kelli Giddish as Detective Amanda Rollins
Danny Pino as Detective Nick Amaro
Ra├║l Esparza as ADA Rafael Barba
Peter Scanavino as Detective Sonny Carisi
